Workplace Mindfulness can be defined as being moment-to-moment aware. Being aware is simply being in touch with yourself – your thoughts and your surroundings and reacting to them in a way as you would do were you on ‘autopilot’. Mindfulness at the workplace has been defined by majority of the most successful entrepreneurs as the one major tool of their operation. It is worth noting that, the workplace is one of the places with the most challenges, with the most pressure from the superiors and the need to deliver. Based on these issues, the majority of people in the workplace will only be goal driven with output being their major concern, due to this mode of operation, majority end up being over-spent, frustrated, and dull.
The good news is that, through mindfulness, you can begin to enjoy your work, meet your superior’s expectation, and your day in the office will seek to have more hours than the ordinary 8 hours.
Here are simple yet highly benefiting strategies you can adopt in the workplace.
The first is mindfulness meditation. Meditation has its roots from the Buddhist community, but you don’t have to be a Buddhist to reap the benefits of meditation. Mindfulness meditation in the workplace involves taking a break from the hassle and bassle of the office and simply pulling your mind, soul, and body together. This way, you help to prevent your mind from wandering away, which is the start of frustration as the mind doesn’t get to focus on the task at hand. With a wandering mind, anxiety and worry creeps in hence the beginning of stress.
The second is mindfulness stress reduction. The workplace environment is full of stressful situation, some of this being unmeet deliverables, low quality output, among others. So, how do you go about mindfulness stress reduction? Through meditation, you can prevent your mind from wondering to those unmeet deadlines. Moreover, when you focus on the task at hand you don’t have to worry of quality. Give everything your do your best shot and the rest will take care of itself. This is mindfulness stress reduction strategy that works by preventing the pressure from getting into your mind by creating an assurance.
Other mindfulness practices that you can incorporate into your daily office program to help you reap the benefits of mindfulness include; taking a break from the work and just do nothing. Well, this might sound time-wasting, but the truth is that, when you take that 5 minute break and just sit and do nothing, your brain gets a break from the work and identifies with the surrounding. This helps to pull energies from the mind and by the time you resume work, you will be at your maximum best.
To ascend to the higher vibration you need to incorporate spiritual wellness and mindful awareness.
